=head1 NAME

Bio::Range - Pure perl RangeI implementation


  $range = Bio::Range->new(-start=>10, -end=>30, -strand=>+1);
  $r2 = Bio::Range->new(-start=>15, -end=>200, -strand=>+1);

  print join(', ', $range->union($r2)), "\n";
  print join(', ', $range->intersection($r2)), "\n";

  print $range->overlaps($r2), "\n";
  print $range->contains($r2), "\n";


This provides a pure perl implementation of the BioPerl range

Ranges are modeled as having (start, end, length, strand). They use
Bio-coordinates - all points E<gt>= start and E<lt>= end are within the
range. End is always greater-than or equal-to start, and length is
greather than or equal to 1. The behaviour of a range is undefined if
ranges with negative numbers or zero are used.

So, in summary:

  length = end - start + 1
  end >= start
  strand = (-1 | 0 | +1)


=head2 Mailing Lists

User feedback is an integral part of the evolution of this and other
Bioperl modules. Send your comments and suggestions preferably to one
of the Bioperl mailing lists.  Your participation is much appreciated.

=head2 Support 

Please direct usage questions or support issues to the mailing list:


rather than to the module maintainer directly. Many experienced and 
reponsive experts will be able look at the problem and quickly 
address it. Please include a thorough description of the problem 
with code and data examples if at all possible.

=head2 Reporting Bugs

Report bugs to the Bioperl bug tracking system to help us keep track
the bugs and their resolution.  Bug reports can be submitted via  the web:

=head1 Constructors

  Args    : -strand (defaults to 0) and any two of (-start, -end, -length),
            the third will be calculated

 Title   : unions

        #it may have been replaced by a union under the key of
        #the overlapping range, we are altering the hash in-place
        next unless $i{$j};

        next if $i{$k}->end   < $i{$j}->start;
        last if $i{$k}->start > $i{$j}->end;

    $lastsize = scalar(keys %i);

    #warn $lastsize;

  return values %i;

=head1 Member variable access

These methods let you get at and set the member variables
